Paper Abstract

We have developed a novel noise model for the analysis of speckle noise and accuracy in birefringence imaging with polarization sensitive optical coherence tomography. Analytical expressions for the signal and noise in Stokes vectors are found, and these are used to investigate the uncertainty in the estimation of amplitude and orientation of birefringence. The important parameter in the model is the correlation between local reflectivity of the two orthogonal polarizations.
